On Nov. 25 the 70 Mile Fire Department were called to a single vehicle roll-over at the Sugar Shack on Hwy 97.

The Clinton fire department attended with the Jaws of Life to extract the driver.

Craft Sale

Miriam Livingston reported that the craft and bake sale was successful.

There were 12 tables and lots of buyers. The baked goods were popular as usual.

Hall meeting

The 70 Mile VFD met with the 70 Mile Community Hall members to discuss the possibility of the fire department drilling a well on the property.

After discussion, it was determined that there was not enough water to supply the VFD requirements.

New resident

A new house was built on N. Bonaparte Road on the lot formerly owned by Bill McConville.
